Lincoln Presentation at Houston Area Museum
Lincoln Presentation at Houston Area Museum:
On Sunday, February 18th, 2:00 p.m. Frederick Beseler will present “Our Favorite Lincoln: Favorite Stories of, By and For Lincoln.” In this presentation Beseler shares many of the classic stories told by the 16th President, and stories told about the President. Lincoln was famous as a witty storyteller even before he became President. No matter what the topic of discussion or situation, Old Abe was often heard to exclaim, “That reminds me of a story…”
Many of the stories are humorous and accompanied by a serious moral or political point.
Beseler has presented this program many times. He first gave this talk in 2009 on Lincoln’s 200th birthday. His program was endorsed by the U.S. Library of Congress Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial year-long celebration of Lincon’s 200th birthday.
President’s Day 2024, celebrating George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays is celebrated this year on Monday, February 19
